Rhydon (Japaneseサイドン Sidon) is a dual-type Ground/Rock Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Rhyhorn starting at level 42 and evolves into Rhyperior when traded while holding a Protector.

Biology

 
Rhydon using Surf

Rhydon is a large, gray, bipedal Pokémon with features similar to both dinosaurs and rhinoceroses. It has narrow, red eyes and two fangs in its upper jaw. On the tip of Rhydon's snout is a cream-colored horn, which is smaller on a female than a male. There are several other spikes and projections on its head: on top is a spike that curves forward, two triangular points resembling ears on the sides, a wide, wavy crest under each ear, and spiky ridges on each cheek. It has a cream-colored abdomen divided into strips by thin divots. A rocky plate on its chest slightly overlaps its abdomen. There is a row of spikes down its back and they have a long tail with thin, black stripes.

Rhydon is a physically powerful Pokémon. It is recorded as being able to topple buildings with a sweeping blow of its tail, and its horn is able to bore through solid rock and shatter diamonds. Its armor-like hide protects it from heat and physical blows. It is stated to be capable of passing unscathed through streams of magma and withstanding a direct blow from a cannonball without being harmed. However, because of this tough hide, it is insensitive. Despite its well-developed brain, it can be forgetful. Rhydon lives in rough terrain.

Major appearances

Rhydon in Pokémon Adventures

Rhydon debuts in Raging Rhydon under the ownership of Koga. It is forced to evolve by its Trainer with a mysterious injection, being the first evolution shown in the manga due to Red's Poliwhirl and Blue's Charmander evolving off-screen at the time.

Later in Tauros the Tyrant, a Team Rocket Grunt used a Rhydon in an attempt to catch Green.

In A Tale of Ninetales, a wild Rhydon attacked two of Blue's fan girls.

A Rhydon appeared in Long Live the Nidoqueen!?, under the ownership of Giovanni. He used its Fissure to trap Red.

In How Do You Do, Sudowoodo?Gold encounters a wild Rhydon during his race with Whitney. It was hunting down a Sudowoodo, and kidnapped Whitney when she interfered with her Miltank, breaking her arm in the process. Gold tells Sudowoodo to stand up for itself and, with assistance from his billiard cue, helps Sudowoodo defeat the Rhydon with a strong punch to the gut.

In Rock, Paper...ScizorBlue catches a Rhydon outside the Viridian Gym. He uses him to defeat Chuck in Heckled by Hitmontop, as well as Orm in Don't Doubt Deoxys. Near the end of the FireRed and LeafGreen saga, Blue remarks on a footnote Giovanni included in his handbook: Rhydon possibly possessed a stronger form. This is a reference to Rhydon's new evolved form, Rhyperior, an evolution that succeeded in occurring thanks to Silver's knowledge of Pokémon trading, resulting in the same Rhydon, as Rhyperior, being on hand with him until being returned to Blue later on.

A Rhydon appeared in Deprogramming Porygon-Z, under the ownership of an Ace Trainer.

Trivia

 
Early sketches of Rhydon
  • According to interviews with Ken Sugimori (translation), Rhydon was the first Pokémon ever made up. This is further supported as its index number is 001 in Generation I, as well as early sketches from Capsule Monsters featuring Rhydon.
  • Ash's Pikachu fought Blaine's Rhydon in the anime and defeated it by aiming an electric attack at its the horn, despite it being a Ground-type immune to Electric attacks. Rhydon's horn also serving as an lightning rod to negate electric attacks would become an ability in Generation III. This particular scene spawned a popular, albeit misquoted, internet meme where "aim for the horn!" is commonly attributed to this episode.
  • Since Rhydon's index number is 001 in Generation I, a glitch Pokémon with an index number of 000 or that is greater than 152 will revert to Rhydon when its Pokédex entry is viewed.
  • Rhydon and its evolved form share their category name with Nidoqueen and Nidoking. They are all known as the Drill Pokémon.

Origin

Rhydon's design appears to draw much of its inspiration from a rhinoceros and some aspects of various dinosaurs, such as ceratopsids.

Name origin

Rhydon may be a combination of rhinoceros and donRhy may also derive from the igneous rock called rhyolite, alluding to Rhydon's Ground/Rock type combination. Don, from the Latin dominus, may emphasize Rhydon's being the final evolution of its line (pre-Generation IV), as it is a title akin to lord in several Romance languages-odon, ultimately from ὀδούς, the ancient Greek word for tooth, is a suffix commonly used in dinosaur names, and so Rhydon's name could be a reference to those prehistoric creatures as well.

Sidon is a combination of 犀 sai (rhinoceros) and don.
